To many, tamales are a holiday food: Make them in one epic batch to give out to family and eat while the weather's cool. But at El Modelo, you'll find the biggest and best tamales all year long. The local go-to is the pork tamale smothered in red chile. A combo of three could sate even two of the hungriest friends with ease. Be prepared for a line and only a few tables to dine; El Modelo mostly does takeout and large festive orders.
